So... I am setting all my professional and personal goals I would like to accomplish in 2010.
One of my goals is making Fang-tastic Books bigger and better.
I already have a site makeover planned and I am going to design some promo materials that you'll be able to purchase through a Cafe Press store.
I would also like to get Fang-tastic links and promo mentions on all the sites that I can. So if you want to exchange links please send me an email with your site url showing me the Fang-tastic Books link and in exchange I'll add your link here.
A big thing I would like to do is schedule even more authors and offer many more fang-tastic giveaways throughout the year. So any authors...contact me for a guest spot. It's free and great publicity.
Still looking for some new blood to add here to Fang-tastic Books, too. I still need a few e book reviewers and a contributor or two or would love to post vampire/paranormal/urban fantasy news here. It's no biggie just a post like once a week that rounds up news that can be found at VampChix, Vampire Wire, SciFiGuy and a handful of other genre sites around the web. I can even provide you with a list of places to gather news.
Another big goal I have for Fang-tastic Books is to boost my number of followers. Currently I have 238. I would like to double that- technically a little more than double because my goal is at least 500 in 2010.
All of you faithful readers can help with at least a couple of these goals by adding my link to your blog or website and by spreading the word and getting more followers here at Fang-tastic.
When FB reaches 500 followers I am going to have a big giveaway with books, author goodies and whatever fun stuff I can scrounge up. I am going to start planning now and adding stuff to a box so when we reach the 500 follower goal you'll have a chance to win an awesome prize pack.
So start spreading the word now and the sooner we reach the goal the sooner we can have the big 500 Follower Giveaway!
Most of my other goals for 2010 involve writing stuff: finishing my novels, getting an agent, and book deals, book deals and more book deals.
Of course I actually have to finish my novels and book proposals before that happens (which is definitely on my goal list).
I also hope to grab a few more regular paying writing gigs. I would love to get a column- a paying column- at a website, ezine, or gasp a print publication (are those still out there? I have heard they are on the endangered list).
I would love to write an awesome column writing about supernatural sex- wouldn't that be fun? I could write about fang bangers, fur lovers and all those people that lust after the paranormals; [ixies infatuted with fairies, trolls loving gnomes, vampires in love with werewolves, witches seriously crushing on demons...can you imagine the problems they face? And of course normals in love with "others".
Can you picture it:
I think my boyfriend's a vampire. When we make love he bites me and I think he drinks my blood. I am starting to feel weak all the time and I can't stand being in bright light. What do I do?
Bitten but not quite smitten
First of all check yourself for bite marks and visit your doctior to get checked for anemia.
Then see if your boyfriend has a problem with crosses, silver, garlic or holy water and check to see if he has a reflection.
You might also want to invest in a good wooden stake. If he shows signs of actually being a vampire you may have to decide if you want to stake him or join the ranks of the undead.
I can dream right? I suppose if all else fails I could always offer the column here for those lovelorn souls dealing with creatures of the otherworld.
Anyway don't forget I need your help to spread the word about the 500 follower giveaway.
It's going to be good, it's going to be big...I just don't know when it'll be. It all depends on when we hit 500 followers.
So tell me what are your New Year goals or resolutions?
I'll randomly pick a comment and the winner can pick their choice of ebooks from my back list.
